Biz Tek Today: Summer Season & Vacations

Coming off the summer season, I hope that everyone had a chance to get away (see the article below on vacations). The article makes a good (even though obvious) point; that is, vacations are important for personal energization.  I personally know the impact of this fact.  It is regularly maintained that the summer months are slow for business.  Not for me.  The summer months are some of the busiest times for me.  Why?  I think the uptick in work correlates to the vacations of my entrepreneur clients.  I think creativity and business strategy flows when business owners have a chance to sit back and reflect.  Consequently, I see more strategic and long-term thinking projects over the summer and into the fall.  Thoughts?

P.S. – check out the article on mobile applications.  The app “photomath” is really cool.
